Today we are on tour with BETWEEN NOW AND HEARTBREAK, part two in the binge-worthy sexy and compelling Forever Trilogy by Dylan Allen

He’s searching for the truth.

I’m living a lie. 

And as much as we want to, 

we can’t stay away from each other.


Falling for Carter nearly cost me everything.

To save myself I made a deal with the devil.

Now, I’ve got a second chance and more to lose than ever.

So when he makes it clear he wants me back,

I vow not to make the same mistake twice.

Carter has learned his lesson, too.

He’s done making promises.

This time, he’s staking his claim.

He already owns a piece of my heart,

But he won’t settle for less than all of me.

And by the time his seduction is done, I’ll want to give it to him.

But I made promises I have to keep.

And the devil I owe has come to collect his due.

“I’m going to kiss you, now,” Carter says it like he’s giving a dire warning. “My goodness, you’re presumptuous,” I sigh, but don’t pull away. I couldn’t. His mouth is so close. That song was so beautiful and catchy. God, talk about talent.  “Fortune is on my side tonight. So, I’m going for broke. Let me kiss you,” his voice is rumble. I’m giddy with whatever is happening, but… “Carter you said we’d just be friends.”  I lick my lower lip and his eyes dart to it and he moves closer to me. His big hands move so that he’s cupping head. 

“No, you said. I told you it was a terrible idea.” His voice is all  seduction and mischief. A million humming birds flutter in my chest at the perfectly wicked smile he’s wearing as he brings his face toward mine. 

His eyes glitter green hued promises that make heat curl in my belly, and alarm bells ring in my head. 

“What are—” 

His lips press softly to mine and cut off my words. My breath catches in my throat and my eyes flutter shut at the touch. His lips are soft, warm and his kiss is as light as gossamer. He starts to pull away and before I can think, I’ve slid a hand into his thick soft hair and I’m pulling his mouth back to mine. He chuckles before he covers my lips with his, shoves a hand into my hair and slides his tongue into my mouth. 

And holy God, does it feel good. His hands are everywhere, running down my back, cupping my ass, pushing into the hot space between my legs through the fabric. His fingers find the heat and wet that is building and spilling from me. Through the cotton gusset of my panties, his fingers are blunt and hard and demanding and so good. 

I want him. I want him. I want him.

I want everything so much I can’t breathe.

I’m desperate to feel him where I need him. 

There’s an ache that started blooming the night I met that only he has been able to soothe. 

I groan and grind into his fingers until I feel just a taste of what I know is to come. 

“Please,” I whimper and press down. 

Suddenly he breaks our kiss, and pulls his hand away from me  with a curse. and presses his forehead to mine. I keep my eyes closed while I try to catch my breath and still my thundering heart. 

“I’m leaving, Beth. It’s time for me to go back home.”


Reviewed by Anna on behalf of KFF

This is book two of the Forever Trilogy and if you haven’t read the first book (Between Now and Forever), I strongly suggest that you read that one first.

Whilst book one ended with Carter finding out the identity of his biological brother, book two continues with Beth’s “deal” with Duke and their impending engagement. I must say that this tale had me on tenterhooks when Carter finds his way back to Beth and their hot trysts gave me mini heart attacks thinking of the what-ifs. The character development of Beth is a pleasure to read: from being a pawn to her father’s ambitions, toeing the line, changing her looks and finally finding the courage to tell the world what she wants but at what cost though?

“What’s romantic is knowing the odds are stacked against you and taking a chance on something impossible, anyway. Because it’s what you want more than anything else. You can tell it’s what’s meant for you.”

There is no denying Beth and Carter’s special connection since book one but their attraction for each other bears a lot of repercussions. Despite the emotional upheaval, they both experienced their love for each. Although it’s strong, is it enough to overcome Beth’s family duties? The biggest twist in the last part of this story was enough to knock me off my chair. Wow, I didn’t see that one coming! I love the secondary characters, the antagonists are sometimes too evil to the point of becoming a caricature, but this is why this trilogy is so riveting for me.

Dina, Beth’s best friend, gives her the balance she needs and the sage advice she imparts gives Beth the impetus to change the direction in her life. We all need a Dina in our life! The author’s note tells her readers to go back to the prologue in Between Now and Forever to remind us that there is a happy ending to Beth and Carter’s story. However, I found it hard to think how the heck the author could get these lovers out of their predicament in Between Now and Heartbreak. This I would like to find out in Between Now and Always and I’m sure Ms. Allen will give us more twists and turns than a London bendy bus!
